Halo Infinite Creative Director Joe Staten Leaves 343 Industries to Rejoin Xbox – Rumor

Following the news that Microsoft laid off 10,000 employees, Bloomberg’s Jason Schreier reported that Bethesda Game Studios and Halo Infinite developer 343 Industries had been affected. An email from 343’s studio head Peter Hintze to staff revealed that it “made the difficult decision to restructure elements of our team, which means some roles are being eliminated.”

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer and live service elements will continue to be supported. Creative director Joseph Staten, who joined in 2020 to help get development on track, has left and rejoined Xbox’s publishing division.

Schreier revealed in some follow-up tweets that the scale of layoffs at Bethesda is unknown (with Microsoft declining to comment). However, several employees reportedly said 343 Industries was “hit hard.” The campaign team has particularly suffered, which lines up with Hintze’s email about some roles being “eliminated.”

Halo Infinite is available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. It had a rough time last year with rumored contractor departures and slow content updates but seemed to get back on track with its Winter update. 343 Industries even confirmed it was still on track with its 2023 roadmap.
